    how do you run out of toilet paper? could you imagine sitting there and hearing that you are out and the neighbor is too? of course i would be out or thats what i would tell you. tp is just as precious as bullets.

    According to data others have gathered on this subject, a variety of materials were used in lands and eras prior to the invention of toilet paper:

    Newsprint, paper catalogue pages in early US
    Discarded sheep's wool in the Viking Age, England
    Frayed end of an old anchor cable was used by sailing crews from Spain and Portugal
    Straw, hay, grass, corn cobs, Sears Roebuck catalog, mussel shell, newspaper, leaves, sand- United States
    Water and your left hand, India
    Coconut shells in early Hawaii
    Lace was used by French Royalty
    Public restrooms in Ancient Rome- A sponge soaked in salt water, on the end of a stick
    The wealthy in Ancient Rome-wool and rosewater
    French Royalty-lace, hemp
    Hemp & wool were used by the elite citizens of the world
    Defecating in the river was very common internationally
    Bidet; France
    Snow and tundra moss were used by early Eskimos

    What will you use when the SHTF?

    A bear is out in the middle of the woods doing what a bear does in the middle of the woods when a rabbit hops by.

    The bear asks, "Do you have a problem with bubblegum sticking to your fur?"

    The rabbit says, "no".

    So the bear wiped his *** with the rabbit.


    I think I'll use rabbit, or get a wild hare up my....

    Are you suggesting this is better than the frayed end of an old anchor cable?

    Maybe if we send them toilet paper they can send us ammo.

    Wild dry grass does an excellent job, snow does too and gets you extra clean but can be a cold.

    Whatever you use, watch for poison plant like oak, ivy and sumac and don't for get to keep an eye for ticks, not the place where I want tick or poison ivy.

    Also please be sure to do it away form a water source, no since making yourselves or other sick or contaminating a good water source.
